Mumbai is the most vacation-deprived city: Study


The financial capital of the country has emerged as the most vacation-deprived city among the five surveyed towns, as most Mumbaikars enjoy working more than relaxing at vacations, says a recent study.

“Vacations play an important role in maintaining the work-life balance, and general well-being of the employees while re-energising them to be more focused at work, reports Zee News.

“However, Mumbaikars lead in enjoying work more than relaxing at vacations as a majority of them take lesser vacation days than they are awarded,” Expedia Managing Director, Asia, Vikram Malhi said.

This, he said, makes Mumbaikars top the vacation-deprived city among the other surveyed towns in the country.

According to online travel agency Expedia.Com’s 2014 Vacation Deprivation report, 97 per cent Mumbaikars’ vacation are deprived, 96 per cent are willing to make sacrifices for extra vacation days and 42 per cent feel guilty for taking a vacation.
